Out of 28 government funded DU colleges, 16 are partially and 12 are fully funded colleges.

The university is currently in the process of hiring permanent faculty.

“I can not allow unchecked corruption and irregularities to be sustained on Delhi govt funds in the name of Education. The sequence of events from Sept 2016 seems to indicate a deliberate and malafied attempt to delay the formation of gov bodies by DU,” tweeted deputy CM Manish Sisodia.

“Almost everything from salary to the teaching and non-teaching staffs to electricity bill is paid by the government, if the fund stops the college will come to a halt,” said principal of Deen Dayal Upadhyay College which is fully funded by the government.

However, the impact on the colleges will not affect the colleges soon, as there are four installments.
